Class of 1985 - 30th Reunion

  • Dear Class of 1985,

    It is hard to believe that it has been 30 years since we graduated from veterinary school. The time has gone by so fast and it makes us realize just how short life is.

    We are in the process of setting up events to coincide with the Alumni Weekend, which is May 15 and 16. So save the dates and plan to attend our 30 year reunion. Look for more information in the near future. We are also in the process of setting up a Class of 1985 Facebook page so everyone can reconnect and hopefully plan to attend our 30 year reunion festivities.

    We will be communicating class reunion information via email so if you are receiving this letter it means we do not have an email address for you! Please send your email to Kristen so we can keep you up-to-date on the events and plans! Send email to kmcmul@vet.upenn.edu

    Take care,

    Randy and George
